1 Million Square Foot Rooftop Solar Power System Announced by Holt Logistics

Holt Logistics has announced it will work in partnership with SunPower Corp to build the largest rooftop solar photovoltaic installation in North America at Holt’s Gloucester Marine Terminal in New Jersey.

The massive 1.1 million square-foot system will be installed on Terminal's refrigerated warehouse near the Walt Whitman Bridge and will utilise 27,528 SunPower solar panels, producing nine megawatts (MW) of clean energy - enough to power 1500 homes. Upon completion later this year, the Gloucester installation will supply the equivalent of nearly 80 percent of the Terminal's power demand and offset more than 9,500 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
